this is a distraction from the real issue, which is the failure of obama care. the president would rather be talking about moral issues than the flawed rollout of his health care website. >> republicans must know or feel this issue is not good for them? >> i think it's more subtle. the president is trying to take the health care law and put it in the larger argument for what he wants to get done. it's a legacy item, a priority. the republicans are content to criticize the president on more americans being on food stamps. the question is what do you do about it? that's where the gap is fundamentally in washington today. >> i was trying to get the hash tag do better going. i would argue republicans have a big interest in this. cultivating business and job production here is much an agenda item on their platform as it is for democrats. >> it is. there's an interesting question. what is the republican agenda for poverty and inequality. this republican will cite people like teddy roosevelt. especially when it comes from the economy, from a different progressive era, 100 years ago. what's interesting is w
fixed. >> which is what's behind two initiatives. first, the 21-day sales pitch for obama care that is starting to work and the other, which is to try and change the subject and the other to talk about income equality, because it's a message the president believes pete beats the republican message of no. in what obama's trying to do is change their mind and distract them to try to minimize the political. >> that's a tough mountain to climb, don't you think? this is all the talk, man, until you figure it out, got a big challenge. >> he's had a couple of year to get ready for this thing and failed miserably getting it out of the box. young people are not going to sign up and if you don't get a bunch of young people to take care of some old people like me, it's not going to o work. i think where he's making a mistake is by forcing the democratic party to go run on this. he's campaigning on this. making democrats run on this. in 2010, we elected a republican congress in the house because of obama care. we're going to basically get another shot here of winning a senate on the same i
. that's always a losing strategy. >> john cornyn, he was trying the benghazi controversy to obama care and talking about how the white house has taking lying to a whole new level. this comes on the heels of him tweeting after the interim deal with iran was announced. amazing that the white house -- what the white house will do to distract attention from obama care. >> man, i mean, that was -- >> he's known to be critical but -- >> here's the thing. john cornyn is essentially a reasonable guy. he runs the senatorial committee. the tea party has criticized him intensely. this statement is outrageous for two reasons. lying to a whole new level? it's not that he's admitting that the president lies and people in washington lie. that's not a news flash. to show no historical memory, elevate for partisan purposes the obama administration of the worst lying in presidential history is ignorant, it's offensive talking down to the american people. second thing is this, for republicans right now, if they're trying to win a republican primary, they're rewarded for being responsible. you throw red m
phone, as if obama care is somehow could be likened in any other way to the iphone. the reason they want to talk about that is because they are probably right. they probably will fix a whole lot of the glitches with the website. but what cannot be fixed is this idea that under a socialized european socialist program, health program where you have young, healthy people paying the way for older, sicker people are just not going to go along with it and it will collapse under its own weight. >> you know, the president has now reluctantly conceded that the promise about keeping the plan was wrong, polling data shows a majority thinks he deliberately lied about that. does it also now appear, charlie, that his other key promise about keeping your doctor may be just as false and misleading because most of these obama care plans exclude many doctors and hospitals in order to keep costs down? >> that -- the promise about keeping your doctor is every bit, if not more, untrue than the promise about keeping your health plan. because even if you get to keep your health plan, it's very possible that you won't
